Maxine Waters to Bill O’Reilly: ‘I’m A Strong Black Woman and I Cannot Be Intimidated’

Wednesday on MSNBC’S “All In,” Rep. Maxine Waters (R-CA) was asked by host Chris Hayes to respond to remarks made by Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly, who had said he was distracted by Waters’ “James Brown wig” two days earlier on “Fox & Friends.” O’Reilly had been asked to comment on her attacks aimed at President Donald Trump from the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Waters said she would not respond directly to O’Reilly, but replied, “I am a strong black woman, and I cannot be intimidated. I cannot be undermined.”

“I cannot be thought to be afraid of Bill O’Reilly or anybody,” she added. “And I’d like to say to women out there everywhere: Don’t allow these right-wing talking heads, these dishonorable people, to intimidate you or scare you. Be who you are. Do what you do. And let us get on with discussing the real issues of this country.”
